Hi bigdawg,

These are much better than my hummer collection, which unfortunately numbers 0 ! though I hear a lot about others seeing them, I just don't. . .

How were these taken, AF, handheld, what lens, etc.

I ask, because I've seen some amazing shots of hummers using MF lenses on a tripod mounted Pentax DSLR, using focus trap and either the onboard flash or an external one. If you have a lot of these guys visiting your feeder, it might be a technique that you could consider using.

Wish I even had the opportunity. . .

Scott

Hi Scott...I used the Pentax K10D with a Tamron 75-300mm lens and a 2x lens multiplier. The were shot from about 15 feet distance and I believe at ISO 1600. All manual Mode and around f4 or f5 at around 1/90 sec. Hand held from my rocking chair on the porch. I have about 30 or 40 that feed from the 2 feeders we have up and can set and shoot them all day. I've some more I'll post when I get home of them perched on some limbs about 30 or 40 feet away!
